GueroLoco aka Mr. GL is a bilingual, educational hip-hop artist focused on helping students to learn another language through rhythm, repetition and motivation. GL learned Spanish while serving in the Marines Corps at the age of 17. He attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California and later became fluent after working with the newly arrived migrants in his home city of Indianapolis.
Mr. GL quickly found work as an on-air personality for 3 Spanish radio stations in Indianapolis and as host of a Spanish hip-hop radio show. It was through this exposure that GueroLoco was inspired to become a musical artist himself. Slowly he began to translate his own life experiences into Spanish lyrics and set them to music. He found himself an audience performing in the US and Mexico. As a commercial Spanish hip-hop and Reggaeton artist, he has won 5 Chicago Music Awards and an international IRAWMA award. He has been featured on various Spanish-language media channels including Univision-Despierta America and has toured Mexico various times as a music and educational artist.
